It's always a pleasure when we get to check out an upgraded model of a product that we reviewed and provided feedback on in the form of a review. It's an even greater pleasure when you find out that the company heard what you had said, and implemented improvements upon the design based upon what you suggested.
Today, we have the pleasure of checking out Acer's recently upgraded Aspire S7-392, a 13.3-inch model that has been upgraded from Ivy Bridge to Haswell; along with a few other tweaks. But, do these tweaks address some of the concerns I had with the Aspire S7-391? Let's find out!
Specifications, Configurations and Pricing
Our specific Aspire S7-392 features Intel's Haswell-based Core i7-4500U dual-core mobile processor. This processor comes clocked in at 1.8GHz across two cores and four threads, thanks to HyperThreading, and can boost all the way up to 3.0GHz, thanks to Intel's TurboBoost technology.
Coupled with the 4500U, is 8GB of DDR3 RAM. 8GB should be plenty of RAM for an Ultrabook, provided you don't like opening pages upon pages in a web browser. It's definitely more than most Ultrabooks will come with.
Graphics are provided by Intel's latest HD4400 on-die GPU. While you won't be setting world records with Intel's latest graphics processor, you can make use of technologies such as QuickSync video to speed up transcoding jobs. Additionally, the HD4400 GPU is a fairly capable graphics chipset, meaning basic games should be readily playable.
The S7 comes with a beautiful 13.3-inch full HD 1080p IPS display that supports up to ten unique touchscreen inputs. The screen is, as you would expect, covered with Gorilla Glass to protect from scratches.
Windows 8 is installed upon a RAID 0 array of SSDs that totals 256GB. It's likely the system features dual 128GB SSDs, which provides for speedy reads and writes, making the system feel snappy, and responsive.
